    Food and service are nice and pleasant. Portion size of main dishes is reasonable at the price (mostly $36 per dish). Settings can be improved - no table cloth, etc. during our lunch visit and seatings are comfortable for family or casual gathering. Does not take AMEX for payment.

    Food was generally good but dishes were hit and miss. Pork and fish was delicious. The pasta was overpriced for average, non-handmade pasta.

    We enjoyed a delicious breakfast at Emerson’s, would recommend the avocado on toast with yummy local feta and the milkshakes were good too.

    Beautiful location in the Hunter Valley. Not a huge selection for breakfast but something for everyone and very well executed. Lovely service.

    Great spot out on the deck for the whole family, food was fine dining quality in a relaxed atmosphere. Great service as always and were very accommodating with my wife's vegetarian request. Been before and we'll be back again!

About the restaurant

Wining and dining

Few restaurants are as perfectly situated as the gorgeous Emerson’s Café and Restaurant. Located in the heart of the Hunter Valley, surrounded by acres of vineyards, this charming establishment is one of the best places to go in the area for a beautiful meal in a beautiful setting. Go for lunch and ask for a table out on the verandah so you can embrace the full experience of an alfresco meal. Order up some lovely wine (you’re in the Hunter Valley, after all) then tuck into some of chef Emerson Rodriguez’s divine creations. Nibble on some spiced pumpkin fritters that come with a mint yoghurt dipping sauce, twirl your way through a bowl of fresh seafood spaghettini with garlic and chilli or dig right into some slow cooked lamb shoulder with orecchiette and spinach. If you have the time (and the appetite) you should definitely consider trying the chef’s degustation menu. While lunch sittings make the most of the beautiful outdoor setting, breakfast and dinner at Emerson’s are just as good.

Best dish: venison carpaccio
